Faction: Minmatar
Mission Type: Encounter (Normal)
Damage Dealt: Exp/Kin/Therm
Extras: Scramble, Web, Neut
Recommended Damage: Exp/Kin
Completed In: Onyx+Raven, Domi + Guardian (first spawn) CNR + Basilisk (second spawn)
Difficulty: Hard

Blitz: mission is complete once cap ship array is dead (good luck tanking!)

When you enter, you will get full aggro and be neuted. Taking out the cruise batteries first gets rid of annoying thermal damage.

The Republic Fighters are not to be underestimated. They tend to have their shots synchronized, so a group of 10 will do 7000+ alpha unresisted.

Clear all of initial spawn cept energy neuts. Spawns 1 and 2 on me, but not 3, tears through tank. RR domi with 4 stable cannot keep a drake up, resists 20/79/79/83 on drake. Either the damage is just that insane, or they are doing EM damage as well.

I have my Matar damage profile set as 40/20/20/20...heavy on Explosive and everything else equally. So yes, I'm pretty sure they shoot EM.
